TULSA, Okla. – FlyingTee will construct and operate a flagship FlyingTee powered by FLITE, active entertainment, golf and dining facility in Carson, California, to be known as FlyingTee Dominguez Hills. The custom designed, three-level 70,000 square-foot venue will feature more than 100 deluxe, climate-controlled and technology-driven hitting bays; along with an expansive outdoor space, active-format games, semi-private hitting suites and event spaces for larger groups and multi-generational gatherings. FlyingTee said it will create 500 jobs when it opens in late 2020.
“We are thrilled to announce our flagship California location will be at The Creek at Dominguez Hills,” said FlyingTee CEO and co-founder John Vollbrecht. “When we imagined the initial concept, in Oklahoma seven years ago, we did it with the goal of creating a truly fun and social experience for everyone while giving younger generations a modern, high-tech gateway into the game. Our unique ability to create fun experiences for non-golfers while also providing serious players a first-class place to practice and improve their game distinguishes us from others in the marketplace and we look forward to bringing these experiences to the LA community.”
The patented FLITE technology powering FlyingTee provides the most accurate tracking for serious golfers and the ability to virtually play championship courses including Pebble Beach, Saint Andrews and many more. The FlyingTee experience opens the door to all skill levels and even newcomers to the sport with in-bay games like Darts, Blackjack and Horse. FlyingTee Dominguez Hills will retain a staff of certified PGA and LPGA professionals to assist in managing golf operations and provide lessons, clinics and tournament capabilities.
FlyingTee will continue its CommuniTEE program through support of community events, local fundraisers and junior/youth golf at Dominguez Hills. Included as part of the program will be discounts and unique offerings for students, senior citizens and first responders along with CommuniTEE partnerships with both local and national charities.
“At FlyingTee, we are dedicated to making our community a better place to live, work, and play. As demonstrated by our commitment to the Tulsa community with our CommuniTEE Program, we take our role in the broader community seriously and are eager to work with organizations in the L.A. area to continue making a difference,” said Brad Wardlow, FlyingTee COO.
